This session focuses on research and development in nuclear explosion monitoring. We welcome contributions regarding all aspects of detecting, locating and characterizing nuclear explosions and their aftermath in all relevant fields of research, including seismology, infrasound, hydroacoustics, nuclear physics and atmospheric backtracking. Papers may address, inter alia, research on algorithms, uncertainty analysis, new and historic data, data collection, machine learning and data mining, experiments and modelling. We also strongly encourage submitting work on the integration (fusion) of monitoring data from relevant technologies.

Public information: If you are interested in the recent advances been made in global nuclear explosion monitoring, you should not miss this Friday session! The more than 50 papers will provide latest findings on questions alike "What are the latest contributions made by science and technology to detect, locate and characterize seismo-acoustic signals and radionuclide airborne measurements of the nuclear debris potentially emanating from nuclear explosions?" and "What do real case and exercised utilizations of a global network with more than 200 operational stations (http://www.ctbto.org/map/) tell us on our current and future capability to detect nuclear explosions?"
